Single-Dose Vaccine Could Provide Faster Protection in Cholera EpidemicsNews
Each year there are more than three million cases of cholera worldwide, a disease transmitted through contaminated food and water that hits developing countries particularly hard. While the standard regimen for protecting against cholera with existing non-living oral cholera vaccines includes administering two doses over a two-week period, research now shows that giving a stronger single-dose of a live oral vaccine could be an effective tool in controlling outbreaks more quickly.READ MORE
Novel Isotope Tracking Method Offers Hope for Threatened SpeciesNews
Locating even a single nest of the secretive goshawk required weeks of exploration. So scientists decided to conduct elemental analysis using strontium, which has naturally occurring isotopes found everywhere on Earth that travel the food chain from the soil to plants to herbivores and predators. Analysing prey remains enabled the researchers to determine where the birds of prey were hunting, findings that could help steer conservation efforts for goshawks and other vulnerable species.READ MORE
Agent Reverses Resistance to Targeted Drug in Some LeukemiasNews
After discovering how some hematologic cancer cells manage to elude death from a targeted therapy, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute scientists have double-crossed the cancer cells with a drug that renders them vulnerable to the targeted agent.READ MORE
